Full Episode Show Notes

Ransomware Attacks

The ransomware attack of UHS last week brought the specter of cyber attacks actually leading to loss of life. We started a discussion last week on Paul’s Security Weekly (https://securityweekly.com/shows/ryuk-ransomware-attack-windows-xp-server-leak-potential-return-to-hackers-psw-668/)
I want to continue the discussion today, and especially take a look at what security and compliance programs can do to help – and/or what do they fail to do to prevent these attacks in the first place.
